INCREDIBLE gluten free bread - the best I've ever tasted and even my partner agreed there was no difference to his "normal" bread. Accommodating without being over the top and sprinkles on the table for my birthday; lovely touch. Really, throughly enjoyed our visit here and would highly recommend... read more

We had heard so many wonderful things about this restaurant and we're going friends who'd eaten there before and really enjoyed it. However, we were left all feeling disappointed with the food and the service. The food was too over flavoured, the chop with pesto was absolutely swamped in it therefore the taste of the meat was lost. Maybe we... More

I was really sorry to read that you didn't enjoy your recent visit to us. I guess you had the lamb chop from our monthly changing mid week menu, (which is served with salsa verde rather than pesto) and priced at £25 for 3 courses which we feel offers great value for money. This menu is designed as a simpler... More

Wild Thyme was truly a gastronomic delight. Our family of three had one of the best dining experiences of our lives....even to our daughter, who's a dedicated foodie! The menu is limited, but every dish we tasted was beautifully presented and absolutely dellcious. Though Wild Thyme lacks ambience, don't be fooled....the food is sublime.

Yet again the most fantastic meal, starter was fantastic, game main course was incredible and the cheese board was superb! This place has it all, great ambiance, great food and great service. An absolute must for a special meal for two.

We ate here on recommendation, the food was superb particularly the fish, but we found the restaurant lacked atmosphere, very cramped and the staff not particularly friendly ( the owner excepted ), we ate at local pubs on the other 6 nights in the Cotswolds and found much better atmosphere and friendliness, we would be reluctant to return, unfortunately, we...

Excellent meal. Innovative and beautifully presented, good service, relaxed atmosphere. Perfect for a special occasion or a family get together. We stayed the night too in the Gold Room which was very nicely furnished - tissues, hot drinks, toiletries provided. Not the best choice if you are tall though - the old beams in the bathroom limit head room! Fairly... More

A lovely friendly restaurant with good service and great food. There are 2 menus to choose from so plenty of choices. The goats cheese soufflé is always a good starter.

From the charming and efficient service, to the tasteful country interior and interesting and tasty food - this is a neighbourhood restaurant that is a cut above the rest.. It is small, and their good reputation has got around, so booking is pretty essential. Highly recommended.

We spent a night at this 'little gem' to celebrate my partner's birthday. The food was amazing and the extra 'touches' were lovely. They even put 'Happy Birthday' sprinkles on our table and added a little birthday message on the dessert plate. The service and ambience was superb and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay - thank you

Small place with a dozen or so tables. Excellent service. Choice of two different small fixed price menus. Nice wine selection. Both first course and second course on the lighter menu were well prepared, served properly and just wonderful. Third courses similarly wonderful. Service just about perfect.
